26Jul1:00 pm2:30 pmSocial Conformity and the MDT: Awareness Is Key!

Event Details

The Child Protective Investigation Team model serves as an integral component in meeting the judicial, physical, and emotional needs of children following occurrences of physical and sexual abuse within our communities. In the review, discussion, and indication of presented cases, each member of the MDT process serves as an autonomous representative of his or her field, offering expertise and insight directly from the members discipline. The concept of social conformity is often used to describe an individuals agreement to the majority position, brought about either by a desire to be liked or accepted (normative conformity) or because of a desire to be correct (informational), or simply to conform to a social role (identification).

In this 90-minute workshop, Thomas Mitchell, Clinical Consultant for the Carl Perkins Center for the Prevention of Child Abuse, provides insight related to the phenomenon of social influence within group settings. The integrity of the CPIT MDT process can be compromised due to variables related to social conformity. Within the workshop, participants will gather an understanding of social influence as well as tools to safeguard against conformity, resulting in the optimal functioning of purpose-driven focus of MDT protocol.
